8.7 oz Tartan Oilskin in Hunter Brown
$30.45 per yard
This high-quality cotton oilskin, made in the UK, features a silkwax finish. Somewhere between a waxed cotton and a dry oilskin, the texture is soft and (as evidenced by the name) slightly oily. It’s water-resistant, has a matte finish and, unlike waxed cotton, the finish doesn’t permanently crease.
We ran a few tests and determined that the silkwax does transfer onto finer textiles like rayon and silk. As such, if you’re planning to pair this oilskin with a lining we suggest using a midweight cotton or quilting cotton.
- Do not wash.
- Do not iron, just finger press.
- Do not use any interfacing with this type of cloth.
- Test silkwax transference on a small section of lining fabric before sewing.
